“I am glad to be entrusted to start the year off for Thompson Boxing and am looking to provide an explosive fight for the fans,” said George Acosta, who is working toward getting into the world title picture this year. “Sims is a tough opponent, a game opponent, and these are the type of fighters that make me the best version of myself. I am looking to be extremely active this year, and to do that, I am looking to make some noise in this fight.”

“This is a great opportunity to get my career back on track,” Sims, stated. “I’ve had a few injuries that halted my activity so now it’s time to start making a name for myself. I’m excited to be taking on Acosta in the main-event of a Thompson card. A win will put me in a great situation since I’ve been out of the ring for over two years. I have big plans to beat Acosta in front of his fans.”
